The novels of Sir Walter Scott were as important in Europe as in the United Kingdom in the early nineteenth century. Auguste de Fauconpret, who Scott invited to dinner, and his son were the first translators of Scott’s novels into French. They caused an immense stir and underpinned many of the novels of French romantic writers and, not the least, operatic librettos. Scott was distressed by the death of Colonel Huxley, who died in Canada. Elsewhere he described him as “a very gentleman-like man”. The letter to Fauconpret has been facsimilised and is found in editions of Rob Roy.
